dev-lang/php minor updates

I've just committed some updates to dev-lang/php, two of which may interest you:

1) the "nls" USE flag, which previously enabled the gettext extension, the mbstring extension and the sqlite-utf8 support, now only enables the gettext extension.
The mbstring extension and sqlite-utf8 support were moved to the "unicode" USE flag. Affected ebuilds are already up to date.

2) the EXTRA_ECONF variable was added to dev-lang/php, that way you can easily pass your own configure parameters to the ebuild if you want to try out some crazy stuff, just do:

EXTRA_ECONF="--with-whatever-I-want" emerge dev-lang/php

Two little notes: the variable doesn't get saved between emerges, so you have to add it to the command line every time, and anything you do that way is totally unsupported, so don't ever file bugs about it, thanks.

UPDATE: it was now changed to EXTRA_ECONF instead of MY_CONF, to follow what a lot of other ebuilds already do.
